The former flour mill originally known as “Weir Mill”, later used as “The Weir Laundry”, now known as “Arle Mill”, when it was being offered for sale in June 1963 and then known as “Marchmont”

The following particulars are taken from the Auction Brochure of 1963: “Marchmont” is a property of great charm and character, but in need of modernisation and renovation, no improvements having been effected for a good many years. With mellowed brick elevations under a tiled roof, it dates back to the mid-XVIII Century and was originally a fulling mill, Alresford then being a thriving wool town. The River Arle, a tributary of the River Itchen, runs along the boundary of the property and provided a most attractive background to a residence that is an ideal subject for converting”
